Overview

This book represents the best way to learn or get trained on ladder logic programming since its like you were buying three different books:

One for Theory, one for Lessons and a third one for Real applications.

Learning about Programmable Logic Controllers has become a real need for any technician or engineer who wants to work or applying for a job in the field of automation. It has been proven that it becomes a major disadvantage when you are educated on the technology of just one particular manufacturer, because most of the companies have at least two different PLC brands on their industrial processes. You become more competitive if you are able to easily switch from programming one PLC to another, like you were able to speak several languages. This book is not for you if your plans are just to read or learn about a particular brand. We suggest to learn general information and it will be easy to understand ANY PLC brand. This book is mainly focused on PRACTICE to help you understand the concepts.

The first chapters will teach you about general theory and all the available PLC technologies using the most common terms and names of industrial automation; knowing the jargon is quite important when attending a job interview.

The second part is dedicated to learn the basic ladder logic instructions used for programming any generic PLC. There is a software tool ( to be downloaded) used to write and test each of the forty step by step hands-on lessons to help you in practicing on Ladder logic programming.

The last part has fourteen industrial PLC applications with project drawings and ladder logic programs, which you can simulate. Practicing with real life examples will help you to understand and reinforce the concepts.

There is some extra and useful material:

A first bonus is a short chapter of basic understanding on electricity. Youll have to refresh this knowledge if you plan to make real connections on PLC applications. A second bonus: The basic ladder logic commands from several important PLC manufacturers: Allen Bradley(r), Siemens(r), General electric(r), Triangle Research(r) and PLC Direct(r). It will be easy for you to understand the basic concepts from any specific PLC Manufacturers ladder logic since you already have learned the basic instructions. A third bonus: A Software Simulator is available for downloading so you can perform a hands-on practice of the lessons and the application projects by writing a program on your computer and performing all tests until it works as expected.

This material is ideal for beginners and self-learners with no specific background because no prior knowledge is assumed or required. This book has already been selected by prestigious educational institutions all over the world to train students on industrial automation. The learning methodology used on this book will allow you to troubleshoot, test and debug any PLC application with DIGITAL inputs and outputs. Our second book (coming soon) will cover the ANALOG part. We look for positive reviews so we are the only ones providing free of charge support: On page 154 you find two e-mail addresses and the steps for you to get support to obtain and install the software, write a program, answer to your doubts and review of your answers to the questions from each chapter ( in English and Spanish).

Note to professors and instructors: . Please dont cut your studentswings by teaching a particular brand of PLC. Try to cover as many brands as possible within your course program.

IMPORTANT: . Dear reader, your learning experience is important to us.We are pretty vulnerable to negative reviews from people who dont even read the text, practice the lessons or try the software. Please read the replies to them. You can contact us at any time."
